About the Festival

"The Best in Green Film Production Worldwide since 2012"

It is difficult to cast doubt on the power images have to reveal, highlight, promote, explain and occasionally critique.

Deauville Green Awards offers a unique opportunity for companies, institutions, NGOs and communities to promote actions and good practices to meet the challenges of climate change.

For the last 7 years, the festival's mission has been to enhance information films, spots and documentaries on sustainability, eco-innovations and social responsibility, and thus educate participating parties on these vital topics.

Each year the festival draws 500 films from 5 continents, and in attendance 400 professionals and hundreds of festival goers and children.
